Biopics are always a tricky thing, but they appeal to the history- and story-lover in me. I’m ashamed to admit that I don’t know very much about Cesar Chavez’s legacy — I don’t think his civil rights work was ever mentioned in one of my classes until my women’s history course junior year of college, and even then it was brief. Anyway, two reasons to be excited about Cesar Chavez: 1) Diego Luna’s directorial debut and 2) Michael Peña is one of the most recognizable Latino character actors out there, so props to both of them.
Chambray dress (exact) – Old Navy; Belt (came with skirt, similar) – Target; Slip-on sneakers – Payless (similar).
No outfit post of my 4th of July outfit (I know, how disappointing, missing out on another red, white and blue outfit 😉 ), but what’s more Americana then denim? Well, actually, if you’re my boyfriend, you’re calling this denim dress a Canadian tuxedo (aka a Texas tuxedo, but ok).
This dress was one of my clearance finds from Old Navy last weekend — apparently it’s trendy too! — and I wore it to volunteering on Sunday. I was at the same space again (the yarn-dying factory), but I remembered my DSLR this time and my volunteer coordinator Cara graciously helped me out as a photographer/art director.
And because it’s worth mentioning again: how cool is this space??
For the outfit, I added some color with my pink belt and print slip-ons (they look like Tom’s, but unfortunately they aren’t as socially-conscious). I’m definitely happy with my dress purchase — though it’s a tad short in the thigh area — but it’s already getting too humid to wear anything with sleeves. But don’t worry, summer: you’re still my favorite.
